Slow news day?: "Obama in Pee Pee" takes over the news

While the scandal in Benghazi hasn't been able to capture the full attention of the media, oddly enough, Glenn's quality art project from last night's show on TheBlaze TV has gotten plenty of coverage.

After revealing his plan to auction the quality "art" projects from last night's program to Mercury One's Hope for the Holidays fund, including "Obama in Pee Pee", the media began buzzing about the controversial pieces of "art".

Buzzfeed was among the first to pick up the story after Glenn created his works of "art" live on air.

In a video discussing a protest of a recent art exhibit featuring a painting of Obama as Jesus on the cross, Glenn Beck went the extra mile to really illustrate his point regarding the importance freedom of speech. In a beret and a French accent, he showed off a piece of controversial art he created himself: a mason jar of his own pee that he dropped a dashboard bobblehead figurine of Obama into.

Though he says the urine is real, it looks like it's pretty fake (or else Mr. Beck may be seriously ill).

He plans to sell his mixed-media sculpture for $25,000. If it sells, he says he'll make a second work featuring Michelle Obama.

Not long after making his announcement that "Obama in Pee Pee" was up for auction, Ebay removed the item due to a "violation" of their rules causing even more of a stir.

Here is just a handful of examples of way the media is reacting to Glenn's charity "art" auction…

"In a video on his website, Beck said the crude “sculpture” was a response to a Boston artist who painted a picture of Obama looking like Jesus on the cross, in a crown of thorns and with arms outstretched.

“Art is in the eye of the beholder and this guy has a right to do this,” the wannabe denim mogul said on the site.

“[The Constitution] says I can’t stop him, and the spirit of that document is that I shouldn’t try,” he said."

The NY Daily News

 

"After Beck made “Obama in Pee Pee” on his program, he announced he would sell it online along with other original Beck artwork to raise money for charity. It was listed on eBay, where it reached a price of $11,000 in less than an hour.

The item, however, was quickly removed. In an email sent by eBay to Beck, eBay said it does “not allow the sale of bodily waste,” despite Beck’s claim that the “urine” in the jar is actually beer. Beck was refunded his listing fee and told not to re-list the item."

Mashable

 

The hook to all of this was a Boston artist who painted Obama being crucified. Beck said he didn't like the painting, but he wanted to support the artist's right to do it. So he unveiled what he called "Obama in Pee Pee," which was just about what it sounded like -- except that Obama was in a jar filled with beer, technically, making it a whole lot less shocking. Beck said he would sell it on his website for $25,000.

The jar was put up for auction on Ebay, which later removed the item on Wednesday morning. Beck tweeted the news, writing, "#ObamainPeePee was up to $11k before our @ebay injustice…"

Huffington Post

 

Now that he's cornered the denim market, noted patriot Glenn Beck has set his sights on an even more lucrative business. As part of a bizarre campaign to prove the importance of the first amendment, Beckfilled a jar with what he at first claimed to be urine (he later admitted it was beer) and then placed an Obama toy inside. He has plans to sell the "art," which Beck titled "Obama in Pee Pee," on his website for the reasonable price of $25,000.

Gawker

This is saying something: This Glenn Beck segment is one of the most bizarre you'll see him do.

Beck was discussing a painting depicting President Barack Obama as Jesus Christ, and he decided he would make his own "art" — which he called "Obama in Pee Pee."

Business Insider

 

To show just how much Beck supports every American's freedom of expression, he created his own potentially offensive piece of art. Using "a Mason jar with a little pee-pee in it," Beck submerged a small Obama statue in a jar of his [presumably fake] urine. "Flowbama," as Beck calls it, is for sale for the "bargain price of $25,000."

E! Online 

 On his radio show Tuesday, Beck said that he didn’t like the painting because of the whole Obama-as-Jesus subtext, but that he supported the artist’s right under the First Amendment to create and display it.

“Art is in the eye of the beholder, and this guy has a right to do this. I think it’s offensive. I don’t think it’s close to reality, but whatever floats your boat. I support his right to do exactly that. I agree with him that people who are upset should not trump his right to be able to do it and be able to hang it wherever he wants — as long as it’s wanted there,” Beck said.

In solidarity with the Boston artist’s First Amendment rights, Beck jumped multiple, crazier steps ahead by creating “Obama in Pee Pee.”

Daily Caller

Michele Malkin's site, Twitchy, captured how the reaction spread across social media

...and how some of the more sensitive lefties (Michael Moore), weren't pleased.

Pleased or not, social media played one of the biggest rolls in spreading the word of Glenn's "Obama in Pee Pee" ebay injustice. The hashtag #ObamainPeePee quickly began trending nationwide.

 

 

If the media had this strong of a reaction to this morning's stunt, you're going to want to watch tonight's show at 5pm ET on TheBlaze TV when Glenn hosts a "telethon" to auction off "Obama in Pee Pee" for charity. The artwork will go to the highest bidder. To place your bid, email ObamaPeePee@glennbeck.com with your bid in the subject line.

Glenn will update viewers live on the show and via Twitter of the highest bids rolling in.

Good luck!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
